No Holds Barred

RLJ Entertainment's new Blu-ray for No Holds Barred begins with what seems like dozens of trailers for movies starring pro wrestlers from the WWE talent pool. Each flick went direct to home video, but once upon a time — aka 1989 — one had to go to the multiplex to catch such a spectacle.

Knights of Badassdom

In 2008, the third act of the guy comedy Role Models used LARPing — live-action role-playing, that is — as a backdrop for our protagonists' lessons learned. Today, Knights of Badassdom extends that half-hour into a full feature, to the point where viewers are left not smiling, but exhausted.

Switched on

Not everything on television has to appeal to mass audiences. In fact, with the further fractioning of viewership thanks to alternatives like Netflix and VOD, more series can afford to become more niche. Here are five examples of shows both past and present — and new to DVD and/or Blu-ray — that encompass some of the more outrageous ideas ever to go beyond boardroom discussion.

‘2’ the TiVo!

Move over, turtle doves! The 2 Movie Guys unleash a roasted chestnut for Christmas viewing.

By Rod Lott December 21st, 2011

Maybe it won’t boast the same perennial power as the Grinch, but Oklahoma City’s 2 Movie Guys are getting their very own Christmas special, Charlie Brown!

“2 Movie Guys’ Intergalactic Holiday Showdown” features KAUT-TV 43’s weekly host duo of Ryan Bellgardt and Lucas Ross, here being abducted by aliens who mistake them as leaders of Earth. (As if!) Awaiting them in space are as many CGI creatures as a $500 budget will allow. Guest starring is local legend John Ferguson, aka Count Gregore, as the “not-so-evil Duke of Mukedon.”

“2MGIHS” — as it would appear in marketing, if this were a studio tentpole — is set to air at 5 p.m. Christmas night on KFOR-TV 4, and again as part of a two-hour 2 Movie Guys marathon on KAUT that begins at 6 p.m.

As part of that marathon, the comedy team’s three previous specials will re-air, featuring appearances by Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Conan O’Brien, Michael Caine, The All-American Rejects, the Oklahoma City Thunder Girls, B.J. Wexler, Bart Conner, Nadia Comaneci, Linda Cavanaugh, Kevin Ogle and killer robots.

You’ve been pwned, Tim Allen. (Not that you weren’t already.) —Rod Lott
